The company's full name is, after all, Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd., but while the latter name is seldom used, it's about to make a rare comeback.<br /><br />The British automaker has just confirmed "strictly limited series production" of a new <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lagonda/">Lagonda</a> saloon, previewed by the two teaser images you see here. The super sedan will be built in the same facility that previously produced the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/aston+martin+one-77/">One-77</a> supercar at the Aston Martin factory in Gaydon and will be available in strictly limited quantities by invitation to select customers exclusively in the Middle East.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/photos/aston-martin-lagonda-sedan-teaser/#photo-2796132"><img alt="Lagona sedan" class="right border" data-credit="Aston Martin" data-mep="366632" src="http://o.aolcdn.com/hss/storage/midas/d8e7f27aec61691283b0ba37355a25d4/200478065/Lagonda_250.jpg" style="float: right;" /></a>Aston Martin has revealed precious few technical details of the new project, but the design clearly pays tribute to the iconically wedge-shaped 1976 Aston Martin Lagonda sedan designed by William Towns, with elements from the recent <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/07/22/zagato-unveils-two-aston-martin-centennial-editions/">Zagato-designed Centennial editions</a> evident as well. It will be based on Aston's ubiquitous VH platform that underpins just about everything it currently makes, and given the proliferation of the company's <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/02/aston-martin-v12-alongside-amg-v8-exclusive/">long-serving 6.0-liter V12 engine</a>, we figure it's safe to say that'll provide the motivation as well, with at least the same 565-horsepower output as the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/aston+martin/vanquish/">Vanquish</a> and the new <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/16/aston-martin-v12-vantage-s-roadster-official/">V12 Vantage S Roadster</a>, if not more.<br /><br />The announcement, of course, hardly comes as a surprise. Just a few months ago <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/08/aston-martin-lagonda-sedan-prototype-spy-shots/">we spotted a disguised prototype for this very vehicle</a> undergoing testing, and Aston has been toying with the idea of a Lagonda revival since the debut of the rather controversial <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2009/03/04/geneva-2009-aston-martin-revives-lagonda-to-questionable-affect/">Lagonda crossover concept</a> at the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/geneva-motor-show/">2009 Geneva Motor Show</a> to mixed reviews. There was since talk of partnering with <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/">Mercedes-Benz</a> to revive the Lagonda line along with <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/maybach/">Maybach</a>, but that ultimately fell through - although the two are still collaborating in other areas, including the provision of a new line of engines and other technologies.<br /><br />Lagonda was originally founded independently in 1906, was acquired by legendary Aston chief David Brown in 1947 and has popped on and off the radar screen ever since. It remains unclear whether the new sedan will revive the Lagonda handle as a nameplate or as a separate brand, but you can delve into the press release <a href="/2014/07/25/aston-martin-lagonda-officially-teased/#continued">below</a> to read what Aston has confirmed thus far.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/25/aston-martin-lagonda-officially-teased/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Aston Martin Lagonda super sedan officially teased</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/25/aston-martin-lagonda-officially-teased/">Aston Martin Lagonda super sedan officially teased</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 25 Jul 2014 00:22:00 EST.
